CROCHETED HEARTS - English version!

Since my Czech tutorial on crocheted padded hearts was successful and many of English speaking crocheters asked me to translate it, here you can find the English version of the pattern.

I hope that you appologize my English because I am not a native English speaker :o) many thanks in advance.



You need:
  • cotton yarn (e.g. Camilla, Catania, Limone, whatever similar you have)
  • hook No. 2,5mm 
  • padding - preferably polyester fiber (I bought a basic pillow in Ikea, cut the corner and used the padding from the pillow - cheap and very useful!)
  • needle with a larger handle
  • buttons, bows, beads etc. or something else to decorate the heart

    The pattern is written in UK terms, the stitches as follows:

    st - stitch

    sl st (slip stitch) - insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch, then through the loop on your hook

    ch - chain

    htr (half treble croche - yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (three loops on hook), yarn over and pull through all three loops on hook

    tr (treble crochet) - yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (three loops on hook), yarn over and pull through two loops on hook (two loops left on hook), yarn over and pull through remaining two loops.

    Begin with 20 ch (center of the heart), work in rounds, around the 20 ch.

    Each row begins with 3 ch, ends with 1 sl st to the 3rd (!) ch (not to the upper loop - see the pictures).

    1. row: 3 tr to the 4th chain from the hook


    1 tr to each of next 5 ch (totally 5 tr).


    Work under two upper yarns, one remains for the opposite site. Chains won´t be badly out of shape and without unwanted holes.


1 tr to each of next 5 ch and crochet together - create a "V" center of the heart. 


1 tr to each of next 5 ch. Remains the last ch.


7 tr to the last chain.


Here you can see how the heart becames to have its shape.


Here you can see the remaining yarns of the basic 20 ch. Now work under this single yarn.


1 tr to each of next 7 ch.


5 tr to next one ch (bottom tip of the heart).


And again 1 tr to each of next 7 ch. One ch of the basic row of 20 ch remains.

3 tr to the last ch. 

Finish the first row with one sl st to the THIRD CHAIN from the first three ch, not to the upper loop (see the pictures, please!)

2. row:

3 ch + 1 tr to the same st.


2 tr to each of next 3 st + 1 tr to each of next 3 st.



Work the next 5 tr together (as in previous row). Then 1 tr to each of next 3 st.



2 tr to each of next 7 st.



Then 1 tr to each of next 9 st.


5 tr to next st (bottom tip of the heart).



And again 1 tr to each of next 9 st.


2 tr to each of the last 3 st.


Finish the second row with the sl st to the THIRD CHAIN from the first three ch, not to the upper loop (see the pictures).

3. row:


3 ch + 1 tr into the same st. 1 tr to next st, 2 tr to next st - repeat 2 more times. Totally we worked 2 tr - 1 tr - 2 tr - 1 tr - 2 tr - 1 tr - 2 tr.


1 tr to each of next 2 st, 1 htr to next st (upper "V").



Next three htr (upper "V") work together. 


On the other side of the "V" again 1 htr - 1 tr - 1 tr.


For the curve work: 2 tr - 1 tr - 2 tr - 1 tr - 2 tr - 1 tr - 2 tr - 1 tr - 2 tr - 1 tr - 2 tr - 1 tr - 2 tr (7 x 2 tr in one st).


Continue with 1 tr in each of next 11 ch...


...5 tr in next st (bottom tip of the heart)...


... a again 1 tr in each of next 11 st. Six st remain.


To the last 6 st work: 2 tr - 1 tr - 2 tr - 1 tr - 2 tr - 1 tr. Finish the third row with one sl st to the third ch.


The basic heart is done!!!


Here you can see the center of the heart - all in-one-stitch and together-worked stitches should be in one row.


Two identical hearts are needed for the padded heart decoration. They are not necessarily be of the same colour, you can mix two or more colours in one heart as well.

We leave a long yarn from one of the hearts, to sew them later together.


Decorate the crocheted twins as you want.


After decorating, attach themselves to the underside. Be careful, the stitches of both hearts must correspond to each other (i.e. the upper "V" to the upper "V", the bottom tip to the bottom tip...)! 


Sew the hearts together. Insert the needle under the whole upper loop! 


In the upper "V", you can insert a decorative ribbon between the hearts. Sew the ribbon through with the needle (see the pictures above). Continue sewing the hearts together. 


Before you finish sewing of the hearts, leave about 4 cm not sewed. Padd the hearts with the polyester fiber and sew the last 4 cm together. Tie-off the yarn.

The heart is finished!!!



You can wrap it into a cellophane bag, decorate with a nice ribbon and you have pretty nice gift for mum, granny, teacher and all lovers of romance. 


I hope you understand my pattern. If you find a mistake (and I´m sure you find it) please, let me know...

HOOK SUCCESS!

  19. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit
    crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
